abc7 news health and science reporter carolyn johnson explains. >> i pretend i was driving on a country road. >> for study volunteer ann, the computer-generated roadway could be called memory game. it's part of a 3-d game designed to test and improve the cognitive brain function in older adults. >> i was interested in finding out if there was some way i could contribute to finding out why my brain doesn't work like it used to. >> the game is called neuroracer. it was developed by this professor and his team at ucsf. it requires drivers to pay attention to certain pop-up road signs and ignoring others, essentially forcing the brain into multi-tasking. >> the ability to multi-task and that declines as we get older. we are looking at boosting a skill that naturally seems to decline with age. >> to accomplish that they asked healthy volunteers between the age of 60 and 85 to undergo training and then drive a course
at regular intervals over a month's time. the initial improvement was dramatic. >> what it showed the multi-tasking abilities of older adults improved to the level of 20 year olds after just a month of game playing. >> in addition to finding outcomes, they reported their brain waves, concentrating on neuropathways involved in cognitive function. as older adults got more efficient, their brain patterns were similar to young adults. providing evidence that older brains are retrainable. >> we showed the brain recording they had, this robust activity from the front part of the brain, the prefrontal cortex. >> in one unexpected result the cognitive improvement challenged skills not held by the game. including work memory, or the ability to hold information to complete short-term tasks. ann describes it as a feeling of heightened concentration. >> you are just there and you are focused completely on that
car and the sign. >> the team now hopes to use even more advanced brain imaging to help understand how neuropathways are physically changed by the stimulation. potentially exploring the effectiveness of these games in treating brain disorders such as alzheimer's and adhd. >> hopefully it will be developed out for something that could have an impact for people and into their lives. carolyn said the professor is now working on a commercial version of the game that could be used both as a diagnostic and a therapeutic tool. many school districts in california face closing schools because of too few students, but san francisco middle schools are overflowing this year. today san francisco chronicle reports k-8 schools are at capacity. 1100 students are enrolled. that's 500 more than last year. that comes as willie brown junior school is closed for renovations over the next two years. district officials say they have had waiting lists to get into every school but one. visitation valley middle school
has room for hundreds more. >> lisa argen is here now, and if you want more of the warm weather, i guess that's on top. >> yes, for the next couple days. we will have some changes but most of you aren't going to notice them. you will have to be right at the coast to notice it. as we take a look at live doppler 7hd this morning. we have fog and plenty of it. dense fog half moon bay. visibility at just about a half-mile. fur headed to the beached to compared to yesterday, anywhere from 10 to 15 degrees cooler and in san francisco we are talking about 10 degrees of cooling today. you head out across the bay this oakland, i'll cut that in half to about four degrees of cooling. you get the idea, the further you go inland, little change. 61 in redwood city, 62 san francisco and 57 and the fog half moon bay. 65, sunny skies, in san jose. mt. tam, another look at the marine play layer. temperatures in the north bay
chilly with mild visibility santa rosa. 72. that's what happens in the upper elevations. the warmer air has really not gone anywhere, but it's the cooler air draining into the valleys and the low clouds, fog, the on shore flow helping to cool us off today just in parts of the bay. so here's a look at our sunny downtown picture, where we will look for another very pleasant afternoon. much more comfortable today. we say good-bye to the 80s in the city. but it's going to be a nice afternoon. the cooling pattern more generous on tuesday, as that onshore flow kicks in. and this area of high pressure fades away. it's this one, our dominant weather feature today and tomorrow with the clockwise flow bringing the compressional heating. the down-sloping winds, the slight offshore flow and the northeasterly winds allowing for temperatures once again to really heat up, even in oakland. which are looking at minor changes today, about four degrees cooler. so a high of 84. same thing tomorrow. you really won't feel the cooling until the middle of the
week here. even though the numbers ever maybe slightly cooler this morning, we will make up for it. no change at all in livermore where yesterday we were 100. 102 on monday and then we will look for the high to fade-away and bring back temperatures down to reality for the week ahead. in fact, temperatures in the south bay, no change at all here in san jose. 94. it was 100 yesterday in gilroy. 96 los gatos. in the peninsula, the 90s. a few degrees of cooling. 68 in pacifica. 73 downtown. up in the north bay a hot one in santa rosa at 95. 100 cloverdale. sausalito comfortable at 79. near east bay, 86 in hayward and 89 fremont. temperatures very warm on the east bay. 90 castro valley. sweating it out again in concord
at 98. 101 livermore. brentwood and antioch, triple digit heat. candlestick park, bragging rights today with a gorgeous afternoon. temperatures in the 70s. sunny skies and through the afternoon it should be very pleasant there. but the look ahead shows we have another day of excessive heat for most and general cooling on tuesday. nice come wednesday and thursday and typical as we round out the rest of the work week. it looks deceiving with the fog out there but we will see a warm one. >> it's going to lift? >> yes. >> all right. thank you, lisa. coming up next, a warm southern california welcome as a boston marathon
>> an update to some breaking news we brought you earlier in the newscast where a triple shooting outside an antioch roller skating rink has left one person dead and two other injured. the person killed was a 31-year-old woman. two men were injured when someone opened fire around 1:30 this morning following an argument at the paradise skate roller rink. their injuries are not considered life-threatening. no word yet on the identity of the woman killed. there are no suspects in custody.

its current location poses serious safety concerns. the center is on the third floor of an old building. it has only one elevator that breaks down regularly. it's so small it can only fit one wheelchair at a time. >> a lot of the newer scooters and wheelchairs and scooters can't even fit in the elevator. >> the center has no open space to accommodate their client list. columns in the middle of the room here pose a danger to those visually impaired. new facility will be on the first floor, it will be roomier and designed to accommodate those with physical disabilities. so far they have raised $400,000 of the $600,000 they need to move into their new place. but they still need $200,000, an amount that's been difficult to raise. vic lee, abc7 news. >> the oldest building in san francisco is celebrating its beginnings. this weekend mission deloris commemorated the laying of the

developing offshore and that's a little twist. you can see it right here in the fog. that will help pull away the marine layer and bring more sunshine to the coast. although it will be cooler. here's a look from our sutro tower camera. you see the fog across the bay. some pipers were needed along the golden gate bridge. dense fog golden gate bridge. 63 oakland. good morning los gatos, 68 for you. higher elevations retaining the warmth. we look for the fog to pull back from some of our beaches. from mt. tam you notice the marine layer is out there, but not everywhere. mid-70s in antioch. 66 in concord and 70 right now in livermore. it's just 9:00. so we are looking at a more comfortable day here, if you like those 81s downtown san francisco, you probably have to wait in the year or so for that because we are back to the
70s. still above average by a couple degrees downtown, but not often we see the 80s. 100-degree heat continues inland with a cooler pattern beginning by tuesday. the low clouds and fog not making much of an impact. it's the upper level high, the strong ridge of high pressure, influencing much of northern california with a down-sloping wind, compressional heating, and the light offshore flow bringing the big time heat from our east bay across most of the bay again today. in fact, it's influencing the valley, as well, with 99 in sacramento. 102 in fresno. that's tip cal for them. 87 los angeles. pretty warm in southern california. we are looking at numbers coming down, even along the san mateo coast, where temperatures there were in the 90s. today low 80s for san mateo. 87 for palo alto. feeling a little better than the 90s. 94 in san jose. it was 95 yesterday. 80 in richmond with 100 in clear
lake, as well as antioch. livermore could be a degree warmer today. 92 in san rafael, with 69 in half moon bay. yesterday it was 79. so feeling better here. we were well into the 80s yesterday. mid-80s for mountain view for your art and wine festival. but plenty of sunshine. as we head over to the bay toward oakland this afternoon, it's going to be a warm one. yesterday was 88. today 84. so there's your slight cooling. upper 7 0s by 1:00. bring the sun block. at&t park, beautiful day. mid-70s and dropping through the 60s throughout the afternoon. enjoy it because we are looking at the low fog and clouds to creep further across the bay, but that doesn't happen until tuesday. still warmed to, tomorrow and then the temperatures will be more temperate into the middle of the week. so more of a spread today. >> and as we mentioned, it's the second round of america's cup races. they need a bit of a breeze. will they get one today?
